Détente

 

there was no bloodletting; only sorrow

the will to have a hollow heart …

yet all the tears that once filled an ocean

turned to salt and stood like a pillar in the land of Lot.

we stood akimbo from one another

chins of steel

elbows piercing

all the directions of earth

 

I write you stones

you send boulders
